, to try and track people. to read e-mails, listen to phone calls, et cetera, the whole nsa scandal, really, boils down to how far you go with this. i want to play you a clip from dick cheney first, before i get your reaction. >> well, the problem i have with snowden is he had access to classified information. he violated the conditions under which he got those. he is a traitor, pure and simple. and i don't think you can judge him any other way. some people want to say he is a whistle-blower, he is no whistle-blower, he has done enormous damage to the united states by talking about my methods we collect -- about methods we collect intelligence. >> what do you think about edward snowden? is he a genuine whistle-blower, a traitor, a bit of both? >> in effect, i think that -- well, a legitimate whistle-blower is one who is the curator of the information that they're distributing. i didn't feel that that was the case with manning. and i don't think that that is the case with snowden. i did feel that was the case with daniel ellsburgh. i think that we will find forgiveness in our justice system
